We’re doing a public OISF meeting in DC next July. Everyone thats interested, please show up! Here is the original announcement:
We'll be having a public forum and brainstorming session in Washington DC on July 16th, 2009! This session will be a mix of technical and political issues. We encourage our current and potential consortium members, potential users and resellers, as well as future end users to attend. We very much want to hear from all in a discussion format what is most important to you, and what you need to have in the next iteration of IDS. The discussion on the lists has been great, but most often even better things come to life when a lot of smart folks are in the same room at the same time, as we've seen at our prior brainstorming sessions. We'll be getting quite technical, but we'll also answer any and every question about the politics, goals, and funding sources of the foundation. We know this is a very strange situation we have, being funded by DHS to create open source security software. So please plan to attend, July 16th in Washington DC, at the SRI Building in Rosslyn: http://www.sri.com/contact/wdc.html If you plan to or are rather sure you'll be there please drop an email to Matt Jonkman, we need an approximate headcount for the catering, provided courtesy of SRI. If you can't make this one don't worry, we are planning similar meetings through the development cycle on the west coast and in Europe. We want to hear every idea we can get!
I’ll be there personally, as will (most of) the rest of the team be. Look forward to meeting everyone there!
